|Hoth seen in-game.|
|Location||Outer Rim Territories|
|Appearances||Rise Against the Empire Play Set|
Hoth is a large planet whose terrain is covered with nothing but ice and snow. The temperatures are extremely cold there, and there are very few life forms that can stand the temperatures. Some exceptions include Tauntauns, which are used by the Rebels on Hoth to traverse the snowy landscape, and Wampas.
In Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, after the Rebel Alliance was driven from their secret base on the moon of Yavin IV by the Galactic Empire, they chose the planet Hoth as their new secret base of operations because of its remote location. It was on this planet that Luke Skywalker was attacked by a Wampa and had to be rescued by Han Solo. They spent some time there before the Empire finally discovered their hidden base with the aid of their Probe Droids, which they had sent to scope out the galaxy in search of the Rebellion. As soon as they discovered the Rebels, the Empire sent troops to take out their base. The Rebels fought back hard with their Snowspeeders, but the Empire destroyed the shields protecting the base despite the Rebels' best efforts. Faced with Imperial invasion, they had no choice but to evacuate the planet. Swiftly they coordinated an escape for the majority of the Rebels via special Rebel transports, but there was no room on the last transport for Han Solo, Princess Leia, Chewbacca, and C-3PO. The four of them ran through the base to the hangar where the Millennium Falcon was being repaired. As Stormtroopers stormed through the base, the four Rebels boarded the broken ship and sailed away.
Hoth will be featured as a location in the Star Wars: Rise Against the Empire Play Set. It will be the location of the finale of the play set, which will involve players defeating the Imperial forces that have come to destroy Echo Base, including Snowtroopers, Imperial Probe Droids, and AT-AT's. Prior to this finale, players will be tasked with setting up the Rebel Base on Hoth. After the end of the play set, players will still be able to ride AT-AT's around to explore the environment.
